LOS ANGELES — The fifth annual Production Music Conference (pmc.pmamusic.com) is only a few weeks away, and a limited number of tickets are still available. The event will take place from September 26th through 28th at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, CA, where leaders in the production music industry will join forces for two full days of panels, learning and networking opportunities.
The PMC’s mission is to provide valuable information and share best practices in a positive and inspired forum to attendees involved in all aspects of production music. The schedule is packed with learning opportunites, including keynotes by Tyler Bates and Dominic Houston. A range of presentations and panel discussions are also planned. Some of the schedule highlights include the following sessions: “Music Library Audio Mastering Primer,” “Women in Production Music: Styles, Strategies and Survival,” “How to Score Big,” “The State of Audio Recognition and Monitoring Technology,” and “Production Music in Asia.”
The PMA is also accepting submissions for the “Demo Derby.” Pros are being offered an opportunity to submit a track for realtime review by some of the top music supervisors in the field.
The show will kick off with the Fourth Annual Mark Awards, which are dedicated to honoring excellence in the production music community. Named in honor of the late Andy Mark, who was a library owner and founding member of the PMA, the Mark Awards recognize the very best in production music in 27 categories.
